Looks like all you need is the axle and some other bits.

This is a great link thanks

Having the benefit of owning both, SAS hands down !! Stronger,ease of maintenance, much more user friendly to suspension MODS & personally you can't even compare the looks of a lifted solid axle Tacoma to an IFS

Solid axle just...looks so damned....sexy

How are you getting your numbers for the SAS? Take everything that you think you will need and put it on a spread sheet, notebook paper, whatever you want. List every item out one by one and put the cost. If you don't know the cost high ball an estimate. Then add another thousand or so to that, plus another several hundred for misc b/s. I started out thinking that I could completely do mine for $4500-$5500 front/rear, all the bells and whistles... I was off. Take a look at the price sheet on my build (which I need to update) and it's the $20 here and $100 there that will kill you.

Gonna go test it all out early Friday AM since I gotta work the night shift. I felt like fun today, so I flexed it with my floor jack when removing the tires and zomg! It's comparable to the Ranger's flex

ARB or TRD E-locker.

That is at least another $1000 for parts.

I'm planning on running one eventually....

It's totally unnecessary to run an ARB IMO. Selectable might be a luxury, but it's overpriced IMO.

Agreed, the ARB is a great locker, but I would'nt want to hassle with tanks/airlines, etc; & yes, too much $$$...

Just overall...there's that room for potential for more to go wrong with having an ARB because of all the added components.

And you sir are speaking from, what, personal experience? Thinking that either factory or ARB must be gold and that's the only option?
